This is one of the most memorable hotels I have ever stayed in. We had a bit of confusion finding the reception due the maze of narrow streets, but were eventually greeted warmly and courteously by the duty manager. Then we were led to the beautiful courtyard for a complimentary 'welcome' drink. Our first impression was very good and we were made to feel very special by staff who obviously cared about making sure we were relaxed and at ease.

Our room was exactly as we imagined from the photos - very unique, spacious and comfortable. The only issue with the Green Room is that it does not have a proper window (only a small one looking into the courtyard which you have to crouch down to see out of), but this is due to the design of the building. Breakfast was of the 'a la carte' variety, and one of the best things about this hotel. It includes traditional things like omlettes, bacon, yogurts, fruits etc but also local breakfast dishes. Everything is freshly made to order, and with the Avli being one of the most highly rated restaurants in Rethymno, it is of a very good quality. Be prepared to spend up to an hour enjoying the substantial breakfast - it will set you up for the day!

The location is just about as good as you can get. You are literally yards from the historic centre of Rethymno (Rimondi Fountain) and 2 minutes walk from the harbour. There is a supermarket around the corner as well. Our whole experience of Rethymno was positive, and the town is well worth up to a week stay. We would highly recommend the Avli Lounge.

We arrived late into Rethymno, tired and frustrated. This ended the moment we stepped into Avli. They checked us in to an amazing 500 year old room - stone walls, 10 foot high ceilings, really quite spectacular.
The service for our stay was always great. They helped us with a car rental, with day itineraries, basically any question that we had, they had some good advice for us.
The food was out of this world good - we had something different for breakfast every day, and had a couple of dinners there also. Just the setting in the courtyard makes it worthwhile.
We spent a couple of hours drinking wine on the rooftop hot tub, which was a cool experience as well.
I really can't say enough good things about Avli. I would return in a heartbeat.

Our stay here was for only one night since we were in transit to Chania. Upon our arrival, at reception, Jonny, provided us with a first-class welcome with wine and snack in the courtyard of their charming restaurant. Our room, (the white room?), was very large, well decorated and very comfortable. The room was very clean, but I think the maid may have forgotten to sweep part of the bathroom floor. However, it was not a big issue. Our room had a small fridge which was nice for keeping our wine and snacks. Atop of our building, there was a spa and seating area which was very relaxing.

The rooms in our building were located above the Avli's gourmet food shop. Therefore, you are required to climb a steep flight of stairs...so be aware of this if you are elderly or handicap.

Our breakfast served in the Avli restaurant' courtyard was of very good quality and selection. We also had dinner there and it was very enjoyable as well. Although their bar was closed for the season, it's interior design was quite unique and it would have been fun to have seen it while open. All in all, staying at the Avli was a great experience and I would recommend it if you are planning to be in Rethymnon.

Strange title perhaps, but I never give 100% marks on the basis of improvement however slight should be encouraged, That said we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Avli and it is well deserving of a great review.

The greeting was warm and friendly, The room was clean ,tastefully furnished and decorated
and practical. The bathroom whilst narrow had a good shower/wet area and was pleasant to use.

The hotel was blessed with characterful dinning areas and the breakfast patio was a delight.

Breakfast itself was a most pleasant experience with a wide range of local foods , beautifully prepared and served in a polite and friendly manner. We ate dinner at the hotel and enjoyed that too, although the menu was a little limited for my taste. I know Jonnie would disagree on this one.

Overall a great stay in the beautiful hotel in a great location for the fine old town of Rethymnon

This charming and affordable historical bldg hotel is well located in the heart of Rethymno - walking distance to all attractions and a beach...is has a great adjacent restaurant and super nice management!

The only downside is that the room can be noisy in the evening as it is one floor above street restaurants.
